“So forget what you thought you knew about the world of work. The rules have changed. ‘Ready, aim, fire’ has been replaced by, ‘Aim, fire,aim, fire,aim,fire.’ Searching fora job only when you’re unemployed or unhappy at work has been replaced by the mandate to always be generating opportunities. Networking has been replaced by intelligent networking building.
“The gap is growing between those who know the new career rules and have the skills of a global economy, and those who clutch to old ways of thinking and rely on commoditized skills. The question is, which are you?”
